Introduction: Shooting Mints
You know those sneaky tins of mints that you get at conferences, the ones that have no obvious opening mechanism? Well they do have one, you press the middle down...
Well that's a pop lid... Like a spring...
Ohoh, this is my 70th 'ible...
Step 1: Safety...
This little game turned out to be dangerous, my first reaction was to shoot one in to my mouth, it worked in the sense that the mint was travelling fast enough to injure the roof of my mouth and ricochet back out.
Mints in the eye are considered socially unacceptable. Eh, while flying mints are considered a minor nuisance getting one in somebody's eye is apparently unreasonable and it looked painful.
Step 2: How to Do It
Rather simple, pop the top and take a mint out, but don't eat it.
Set the top back on without letting it snap on, put the mint in the middle.
Squeeze the sides.
Enjoy fresh breathed carnage.
Step 3: How to Get Them in Your Mouth
If you do want to get a mint in to your mouth shoot it directly up beside you and catch it, otherwise it can be a choking hazard, as in it hits the roof of your mouth and flies down your throat...
Step 4: Mints in Your Hair!
Before leaving check your hair for mints, I found a total of eight in mine, three in my top pocket and one in my jeans pocket...
Also on a serious note, conference mints are an important part of the world economy, it's vital that conference goers shovel handfuls of the little tins in to their pockets when given the opportunity in order to keep the system working.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
